Leading the, Maroon 5 is new at #37 with “Girls Like You”, the current #1 song on iTunes. A music video for the release, featuring a remix with Cardi B, was released a few days ago and includes top women in entertainment from the worlds of film, music, sports and television. Two notches lower, at #39, singer/songwriter Ben Rector launches with “Drive”. It’s the first radio single off his forthcoming set Magic, due June 22. Rector went to #5 on my chart in the spring of 2016 with “Brand New”, which also reached the top ten on the Hot AC radio list. Finally, at #40, Canada’s Scott Helman is searching for his fourth consecutive top ten on my survey with “Ripple Effect”. You can find it on his album Hôtel de Ville, which also includes the singles “Kinda Complicated” (#4) and “PDA” (#7).

Chart Notes:

  • On this Memorial Day Weekend, there’s a new song at the top from Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa! “One Kiss” marks the first collaboration for the two soloists, soaring from 3-1 this week. It’s Harris’s first #1 on my chart and Lipa’s second, following her smash “New Rules”, which spent two weeks at the top in November. The current songs from A Great Big World (“Younger”) and the Backstreet Boys (“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”) share the title of Biggest Mover this week, moving up a massive 12 notches to #12 and #24, respectively. (Expect both chart hits to vie for my own Song Of The Summer in the next few weeks.) A pair of new tracks enter the top 40 this week, led by Passenger‘s “Hell Or High Water” at #36. The single, which was recently serviced to the Triple A format, is the ninth chart entry for the singer, five of which have hit #1. Could this become his sixth? It may have a chance later this summer, especially as his upcoming set Runaway approaches. Two spots lower, at #38, the latest American Idol champ makes her chart debut: 20-year-old Maddie Poppe with “Going Going Gone”. It’s the third coronation song from the music competition show to make my survey since the start of the decade, following a pair of tracks from Phillip Phillips (“Home”, 2012) and Nick Fradiani (“Beautiful Life”, 2015).

Chart Notes:

  • Is it 1999 or 2018? That is the question. This week’s two splashy debuts come from none other than the Backstreet Boys and Christina Aguilera, who haven’t appeared on my survey together since the summer of 2001. Just under 17 years ago, in July of that year, “More Than That” from the Boys and “Lady Marmalade” from Aguilera and her Moulin Rouge pals, both #1 songs on my chart, last ranked in the top 40 simultaneously. (Though that was the last time the two acts appeared on my survey with individual titles, both sang on the 2001 charity track “What’s Going On?”, credited to the All-Star Tribute, while Carter from the Backstreet Boys and Aguilera were in the top 40 during the fall of 2002 with “Help Me” and “Dirrty”, respectively. Leaping ahead to the latest chart, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” (#36) from the five-man group and “Fall In Line” (#40) from Aguilera and duet partner Demi Lovato will be going strong on my chart for some time. Paging *NSYNC and Britney Spears, come back to the pop world…

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Canadian singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes, who scores his second #1 on my chart with “In My Blood”. The hit, up 2-1 this week, leads Mendes’s forthcoming self-titled album, due May 25. He previously led my chart for three weeks in June and July of last year with “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”. The debut action is also hot this week, with four entries on the countdown, led by A Great Big World‘s “Younger” at #32. The duo has two #1 songs to date, and “Younger” is now their seventh top 40 hit since 2013. Following that, Bastille‘s “Quarter Past Midnight” jumps in at #35, their eighth top 40 entry to date. In January, the group reached #8 with “World Gone Mad”, which was featured on the soundtrack to Netflix’s Bright. For singer and songwriter John Mayer, it’s a new entry for #38 with “New Light”. The single marks Mayer’s first new material to not be released by longtime label home Columbia since 2001, though it is distributed by Sony’s independent arm The Orchard (via label Snack Money.) Lastly, at #40, is the Dave Matthews Band with “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)”, the first single off their upcoming album Come Tomorrow. It’s their first studio set in nearly six years, which launched the singles “Mercy” (#19) and “If Only” (#30) into the top 40 in 2012.

Chart Notes:

  • New songs from Forest BlakkLeon Bridges and P!nk break into the top 40 this week – “Beyond” from Bridges leads with a debut at #38. It’s the first Hot AC single off his latest release Good Thing, though “Bad Bad News”, which was released a few weeks before “Beyond”, is now in the top five on the Triple A chart. (Look for “Beyond” to enter the lower rungs of the Hot AC chart tomorrow.) One spot lower is future CanCon smash “Love Me” by Blakk, which is already earning moderate airplay on a handful of stations on the Hot AC panel up north. The singer and songwriter was born in Canada, but currently calls Germany home. Lastly, at #40, is another chart song from that colorful hitmaker herself, the third off her Beautiful Trauma album. It’s the follow-up to the title cut, a recent #2 single on my list, which is now at #37 in its 24th week in the countdown.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 17, 2018)

Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: ZAYN proclaims that it’s all about “Me”, but does his latest track take the Most Added title, or will one of last week’s delicious duets eat up the adds toward a #1 finish? Let’s add ’em up:

“ME” TWO: The top tier of this week’s Top 40 adds update definitely has a “Me” thing going on, even without the myself or I. For most of the day, “Done For Me” by Charlie Puth featuring Kehlani, last week’s runner-up single, and the impacting “Let Me” by ZAYN saw a decent amount of action from the panel, the former receiving 56 stations in the week after its official impact, with the latter collecting 48 stations. Look for ZAYN’s new release on his forthcoming studio album, due later this year. Meanwhile, Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa slip to third place with the Most Added song from a week ago, “One Kiss”, new at 28 more stations.

The only other significant impacting song of note is “Push Back”, a collaboration by Ne-Yo, Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don. In a fourth place finish, it pulls in 18 adds during its first week. Ne-Yo’s upcoming album, Good Man, is due this summer. Rexha’s song “Meant To Be”, featuring Florida Georgia Line, recently peaked at #2 on the pop chart, though it’s still up in spins for the week. Stefflon Don has yet to enter the top 50 here, though she has seen some moderate chart results on the Rhythmic and Urban lists.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. CHARLIE PUTH featuring KEHLANI, “Done For Me” (APG/Atlantic)
2. ZAYN, “Let Me” (RCA)
3. CALVIN HARRIS & DUA LIPA, “One Kiss” (Columbia)
4. NE-YO, BEBE REXHA & STEFFLON DON, “Push Back” (Motown/Capitol)
5. DRAKE, “Nice For What” (YMCMB/Republic)
6. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Delicate” (Big Machine/Republic)
7-T. AJR featuring RIVERS CUOMO, “Sober Up” (S-Curve/Hollywood)
7-T. LOGIC & MARSHMELLO, “Everyday” (Def Jam)
9-T. BIG BOI, “All Night” (HitCo)
9-T. BÜLOW, “Not A Love Song” (Wax/Republic)
9-T. FOSTER THE PEOPLE, “Sit Next To Me” (Columbia)

Chart Notes:

  • Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa are responsible for this week’s Highest Debut with “One Kiss”, smooching its way into the #34 spot. Lipa’s “IDGAF” holds onto the #9 position for the third consecutive week, while also showing solid growth at the Hot AC and Top 40 radio formats. With his first top 40 single on my chart since “Superbad”, which went to #13 during the summer of 2014, Jesse McCartney comes in at #38 with “Better With You”. Look out for more new music from the performer later this year. Lastly, at #40, Matt Simons returns with his first hit in three years, “We Can Do Better”. In early 2015, his song “Catch And Release” peaked at #23, though it reached the top five on the Triple A radio chart a little over a year later.
